The inspiration and motivation I experienced during the course propelled me forward and set the tone for my most productive and successful year up until that point. After Immersion 2020, I put a website and portfolio together, started pitching to clients, and signed three licensing contracts within the year! In 2021, I landed my first fabric collection […]

What I loved most about Immersion: Not only did I learn the technical skills I needed for surface pattern design, I also joined the most amazing community of creatives. The support and encouragement from this community is unreal. Meeting other people who are excited about surface design has been the fuel I needed to propel myself […]

When I started Immersion in 2020 I was already a top-seller on the Spoonflower marketplace, and I’d been using Adobe Illustrator for 20 years. However, I was mostly self-taught so I really lacked confidence as a designer and I definitely suffered from imposter syndrome! Let me say… I got SO MUCH out of Immersion! The […]

Before I jumped into the Surface design world, I had been designing, sewing, and selling baby clothing on my Etsy store. I was always swamped with orders! The money was great but I had 3 children (with another on the way) and a husband who I was losing out on time spent with them. When […]

The thing I love most about Immersion is the quality of the content and the thoughtfulness and value of the resource were above my expectations! I have learned so much and love growing with the community. Five years ago, I was on maternity leave from a career I worked hard to achieve with a beautiful […]

Immersion changed my life and gave me the resources I needed to fulfill my dream of working as an artist. Before beginning my journey with Surface Pattern Design I was a stay-at-home mom who created art during nap time. For years, more than a decade, I had a dream of designing surface patterns but I […]

I absolutely loved Immersion! Going through the lessons, live calls and projects gave me such insight into the business of surface pattern design and really gave me the courage to let my dream of being an artist blossom into a reality! Both Flourish and Immersion have been so life giving for me! Immersion was so […]

My name is Karoline. I am from Hamburg in Germany and I discovered Bonnie’s courses on Skillshare over 6 years ago. I was immediately fascinated by Surface Pattern Design and I immediately realized that I finally found something I’m burning for. I was already working as a freelance designer for years but it was never […]

Before doing the Immersion Course, I had been trying to self teach myself surface design from Skillshare videos. This was when I discovered Bonnie. I knew this one something I wanted to invest in. Shortly after completing the course I gave birth to my second child. This time around I had decided to make a […]

What did you love most about the Immersion Course? One of my favorite parts: Learning how to forage and scan found objects in nature, digitizing watercolor art, viewing portfolios and developing an understanding for how they are set up, and seeing the wonderful work of other creatives in Immersion. What made you decide to enroll […]

If I could go back in time I would have taken Immersion sooner! Also, around that time, I was leading a peer group in Flourish. My group was so supportive and excited for me and I still keep in touch with them. I think the community is such a wonderful perk of Immersion or Flourish, […]

Even though I have a lot of experience it was so lovely to find Bonnie and her Flourish membership. Then followed up by the immersion course for all the amazing support, community, and answers I was looking for and didn’t even know I needed. My favorite thing is how it is all presented, it’s all […]

I was a stay-at-home mum living in Asia following my husband’s ex-pat career. A background in Fashion design, worked in the Fashion industry in Europe before we moved but was not allowed to work on several of our postings. I taught on and off but my heart was not in it. During my work as […]

"It is refreshing to find Bonnie who is genuinely excited to share her knowledge with others. She feels that our success is a wonderful thing and it doesn't threaten her. I want to be a Bonnie in this world. I want to feel abundance, not scarcity. There is enough for everyone to succeed, and I want to help others find success.  Being in a community with that kind of thinking is priceless."

I feel encouraged to set bigger goals for myself, dream bigger, and truly believe that I can achieve them.”

Elizabeth Chappell

"The Immersion Course is incredibly comprehensive, providing you with all of the tools necessary to have a successful career in Surface Pattern Design. I had already taken all of Bonnie’s other classes when I signed up for her Immersion Course and wasn’t sure if there was that much more she could teach me. Boy, was I wrong."

I learned more skills, techniques and workflows. I also learned that there was a community of folks out there that we could all learn from, support and encourage each other."

Heather Schwarm

...and I'm still coming back for more of Bonnie's content because it is so life giving and encouraging. I've been licensed in many industries including fabric, children's clothing, home decor and the outdoor industry."

In two years since taking immersion, I've been able to turn this passion of mine into a full time career.
